Over the past two decades, bees have been disappearing in droves. And while it may not seem like a huge deal at first glance, this phenomenon could spell catastrophe for the world’s food supply.
Though small, the honey bee does more than you may have even realized. By pollinating flowering plants, they help our environment continue to thrive and produce food. Due to factors like global warming and chemical pesticides, though, the honey bee population has dropped dramatically over the past 20 years. If this phenomenon isn’t stopped, our food supply and ultimately we will be in jeopardy.
Bee The Solution.
We have the power to make a difference and help save honey bee populations. By raising awareness in our communities and appealing to those in power, we can work to find sustainable practices that support our way of life, as well as the environment.
